...precise and very elegant...with a pretty succession of aromas that play cautiously forward, building in intensity along the way. Dried currant and cherry cede to moist earth, rose petal and balsam herb...medium-weight body is supported by fresh acidity and well-managed tannins...
...opens with an alluring bouquet that showcases dark red fruits, sweet florals, dusty earth and a hint of animal musk...soft, enveloping expression, displaying ripe red and black fruits...mix of spices, saline-minerals and zesty acids saturate the senses...finish is long, spicy, yet also wonderfully fresh, with hints of fine tannin gently tugging at the senses.
Savory notes of loamy earth, wild herbs, woodsy underbrush and salt augment the cherry and strawberry fruit... Balanced and juicy, with terrific complexity and length.
Plenty of earth, tar, spices, dried cherries and red plums...tannins have a firm but generous quality to them, providing an abundance of structure to the full-bodied palate.
Forest-floor, leather, camphor and dried rose aromas mingle with a whiffs of vanilla and French oak. The brawny palate offers dried cherry, licorice and the heat of evident alcohol while firm, close-grained tannins leave a drying finish.
...concentrated, perfumed, sweet fruit is evident, with hints of oak underneath. Long and richly flavoured cherry fruit with bittersweet tannins.
